Things to do in Lombok
There are some impressive beaches in the area, which are actually quite quiet on most occasions. You can surf big waves at Bangko-Bangko, or head to the Gili Nanggu Cottages and Bungalows resort where you can laze on a pristine private beach. For an amazing underwater adventure, you could go snorkeling in the beautiful reefs that are exclusive to Gili Islands only. Couples can also try horseback riding around Lombok area for a great view at the rice paddies, tobacco fields and traditional fishing villages. You can also go on a trip to Mount Rinjani National Park and be rewarded with a great view at its crater lake and refreshing waterfalls.
Best time to visit Lombok
The best time to visit the area in terms of weather is during the summer months, from June to September. This is the time when there is the lowest amount of rainfall, and when you are most likely to enjoy the area.

Little is actually known in terms of the history, but tourism is an important source of income on the island. Popular tourist destinations in the area include Mount Rinjani, Gili Lawang, Narmada Park, and Mayura Park. These are all beautiful destinations that you have to see firsthand in order to appreciate their true beauty.
